Saying that files in parent folders can't be included is incorrect.
The files that can beincluded are only restricted by the folder set in
your configuration, any file or subfolder of that can be included
fine. In the past, WP has worked for me no problems, so perhaps you
should check the configuration options on which directories are
allowed to be opened.
